The news comes courtesy of Automotive News after product development boss for Mercedes-Benz Thomas Weber confirmed the news. As a result, it’s a foregone conclusion that the S-Class Coupe will reach it to production sometime next year with the Mercedes-Benz S-Class Convertible to arrive about a year later.

The new S-Class Convertible will consequently become the first drop-top S-Class since the W111 Cabriolet which sold for a decade from 1961. Under the hood, the Mercedes-Benz S-Class Convertible will be available with a selection of twin-turbo V8 and V12 engines.
As for the S-Class Coupe Concept, it “embodies sensual clarity in a modern way” and is characterised by its rear-wheel drive layout and as the following images show, the S-Class Coupe Concept features a long bonnet complete with distinctive lines and power domes. The car is then rolling on a set of 21-inch wheels measuring 265/35 R 21 at the front and 295/35 R 21 at the rear. Overall, the Mercedes-Bez S-Class Coupe Concept has a wheelbase of 2945mm and measures 5050mm in length, 1958mm wide and is 1409mm high.
At the front, the S-Class Coupe Concept incorporates a diamond front grille with the traditional three-pointed star badge. It also features full-LED headlights with LED daytime running lights. While the S-Class Coupe Concept may feature the S-Class nameplate, it shares almost no common design elements with the standard S-Class sedan.
